    In my attempts to get a small tribe of home-schooled kids hooked on this series, I inadvertently snared their mothers instead. The women, ignoring my cries of "Pace yourselves, ladies, the last volume isn't due until June 2018!" tore through all the titles last year, and have been sitting around, brokenhearted, waiting for the concluding title.

The women, ignoring my cries of "Pace yourselves, ladies, the last volume isn't due until June 2018!" tore through all the titles last year, and have been sitting around, brokenhearted, waiting for the concluding title. And, now, finally, I can join them in their misery. And the days tick slowly by . . . This was a fun go-round with the Incorrigibles, including a chilly outing to the seaside (Brighton in winter - de-lightful!) and some innocent Russian collusion collaboration. There's a visit to HAM - the Home for Ancient Mariners, and a rendezvouz with the prophetic Seashell of Love. Hotels are transformed into sailing ships, and many deep, dark secrets are revealed. I was surprised to read a retelling of the story of the doomed Russian wedding party and a pack of hungry wolves - a tale I first encountered in My Ántonia. It's a pretty grisly anecdote for a children's book, though (view spoiler)[at least the wolves end up happy. (hide spoiler)] Perhaps it's apt after all; these are children who were raised by wolves . . . or were they? Well, some of the mysteries posed in the series are finally solved in this volume. Of course, many new conundrums are presented . . . but they should all be answered, hopefully, in the final book - The Long-Lost Home. It looks to be a humdinger! C'mon June!

How many more await me before "the rest of the story" becomes available? I have dark circles of worry under my eyes after just one night. I have a dangling impatience that is worse than any dangling participle. Be forewarned. That howling that you hear ? If it sounds like why why why a - hooo, it's just me-- especially if it's followed by a sniffle. My heart is breaking. I hope it keeps beating long enough to find out what happens next. I had to subtract a star for my "waiting" pain and suffering.

    This is much more like it. Instead of being strung along, this book, even more than the previous one, is full of answers. There are still a few mysteries, and of course the question of how to break the curse, but I'm feeling much better at the number of things we know versus the number of things we don't know. I'm glad that I waited until this year to read book five, though, because there's quite a cliffhanger at the end of the book.

That took me by surprise, too, because previous books have always solved the present danger before ending. At any rate, I'm looking forward to the last book even more now.

    “To do something familiar and succeed is no surprise, but to try something new and fail--why, that is the start of an adventure.” Finally the pieces are all starting to come together! When pregnant (dear lord!) Lady Constance's doctor recommends a trip to the sea, the entire household is off to Brighton in the off-season. There they meet the mostly awful Babushkinov family, try to convince Lady Constance that she's actually going to Italy, and encounter evil Edward Ashton (AKA Judge Quinzy) agai “To do something familiar and succeed is no surprise, but to try something new and fail--why, that is the start of an adventure.” Finally the pieces are all starting to come together!

There they meet the mostly awful Babushkinov family, try to convince Lady Constance that she's actually going to Italy, and encounter evil Edward Ashton (AKA Judge Quinzy) again. Penelope further explores her feelings for her friend Simon, who is there visiting his Great Uncle Pudge, who may finally reveal the secrets of the Ashton family curse. But how are Penelope and the Incorrigibles connected to the Ashtons? It's finally revealed! But a terrible betrayal and an unexpected twist leave this fifth book with a cliffhanger ending and the final installment doesn't come out until December*! We've been checking out library copies, but I've pre-ordered The Long-Lost Home. *Current release date is June 19, 2018. (This is why I shouldn't read series until they're complete.)

    I absolutely could not resist Katherine Kellgren’s narration and so immediately listened to the audiobook of The Unmapped Sea by Maryrose Wood, the next in the saga of Penelope Lumley and the children raised by wolves who now live at Ashton Place.

    I'm hoping that all of my questions will be answered in the next (last) book of this series. I'm going to have to start it right away. NOTE: I really liked the previous book cover illustrations - the ones with Miss Penelope Lumley standing in the middle of the frame, surrounded by the 3 Incorrigibles. Somehow this book cover just does not feel right to me. I don't like it.

    Some questions get answered and new questions pop up but once again we get another wonderful installment of The Incorrigibles. I have to admit I got a little teary at the end and now I will be waiting very impatiently for #6 which I believe is the final book!

    A fun continuation but that ending!! WHY?!? I immediately hunted down the 6th book upon finishing this one, talk about a ridiculously cliff-hanger-y ending. I love the Incorrigibles, and Lord Ashton became much more likeable. I mean, he's always just been kind of a character who is there and causes stuff to happen and is enjoyable, but now I like him.

It has been awhile since I read the previous books (and I wanted to start right over again too and revisit each one) but I was still able to recall enough details, and they remind you of many things, so it was fine. I noticed especially that Wood tied in many of the, what, themes? of the previous books? The the Incorrigibles learn and are woven through each story. It was really fun.

    Like always, this installment of the The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place was fantastic. The writing was perfect for both children and adults (which is fairly rare) and it was hilarious as usual. It was the perfect balance of lighthearted narration and serious plot development.

    There is so much here that children won't get that cracks me up. Snickety, but so much theater humor.

    I just love Penelope and the Incorrigibles. And my homeschooler side never expected to be so inspired by a modern children's fiction series.

    The entire series of The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place are wonderful reads. Not only is the stories entertaining they have lots of educational tidbits. While written for a younger audience, I could not lay the books down.

    I'm glad this volume brings the mystery closer to a resolution, yet overall it didn't grab me quite as much. Perhaps it was the addition of several more loud and histrionic characters whose presence made the audio performance equally loud and histrionic. The funny faux-genteel tone is still there, but it's starting to crumble under the weight of plot. That said, I care enough about the characters (and enjoy Kellgren's performances enough) that I will definitely listen to the rest this series.

    I loved this book! I felt like it was a little hard to get into, but once into it it was full of mystery and I was always hanging on to every word. Even though this book recommends ages 8-12 I believe it is a book for anyone who likes mystery and wants to laugh! I am a teenager and love these books!

    Loved this book:) A whimsical adventure full of Babushkinovs, ships and poetic meter. Very exciting and funny. I can't wait for the next book in the adventures of the incorrigibles and Miss Lumawoo. :D

    I was very unhappy with the direction the series took during this book. The new characters are completely distasteful, and the stomach-wrenching ending was completely out of keeping with the rest of the series. I'm nervous and upset about where the next book will take me.

    This book, my friends, was pure happiness. I think I quite enjoyed it as much as the first one in this series (which is the best). Many of the questions raised in the first four books finally begin getting solid answers in this book and I am happy to report that many of my suspicious were correct. *mental self pat on the back* There is much talk of food, which I greatly appreciate. The humor is on point and didn't feel as forced as it has in some of the previous books in this series. Lord Fredri This book, my friends, was pure happiness.

The humor is on point and didn't feel as forced as it has in some of the previous books in this series. Lord Fredrick Ashton who, up to this point, had amused and annoyed, but mostly annoyed me, is turning into this adorable, bumbling little sweetheart and I love him. And...and...and Simon and Penelope. *one million heart eyes* I can't even. I just can't. *happy sobbing* Often times, romance in MG novels does not please me, but this, this pleased me greatly. It's so ridiculously adorable and precious and I 100% support and if you know anything about me then you know that means a lot. I love these kids. ❤️❤️❤️ --- At about the third book, I was starting to get a little tired of this series. (I just don't do good with long series. They stress me.) I mostly kept reading because I wanted to find out the mystery, but I was losing interest. Well, I am happy to say that #5 has restored my love for this series. Rock on, Penelope, I'm stickin' around for Book 6.

    Okay so I've already started reading the last book in this series so I have this think back to how I felt after I finished it. Oh ya I'm pretty sure I hated the ending. I mean Penelope was forced to leave the incorrigibles. Those rude Babushkinovs. And don't get me started on Edward Ashton. I can get that you want to save your family from some weird creepy wolf curse thingy but seriously. I mean he left the incorrigibles in the woods so Lord Frederick would shoot them. How horrific is that. Oh an Okay so I've already started reading the last book in this series so I have this think back to how I felt after I finished it. Oh ya I'm pretty sure I hated the ending.

How horrific is that. Oh and also just making Penelope leave the incorrigibles and Ashton place. That's just plain rude. Also you've gotta love the little wise sayings from Agatha Swanburne.

    We positively LOVE this series. I can’t even begin to describe the feelings of anguish upon learning that the finale won’t be available until June! My son immediately started the series all over again hoping it would cause the time to pass quicker...

    This is the first in the series I read instead of listened to...and may have enjoyed it even more than the rest (though I'm looking forward to re-visiting it in audio form)! I just can't get enough of this clever voice.
